Tuesday Singers

Welcome to the Tuesday Singers website.

        The photograph above was taken in February 2015  following the concert which was in support of Research into  Macular Degeneration .

The choir meet on Tuesday  mornings at St Marks Crescent Methodist Church, Allenby Rd, Maidenhead SL6 5BH
       Rehearsals start promptly at 10 a.m, finishing at 11.45 when many members adjourn to the New Inn for coffee.
 We enjoy singing to local clubs, nursing homes and anyone who asks us. We charge for our performances to cover the costs of the event 
 We also arrange 2  public concerts a year with the money raised  divided between supporting a local charity, usually suggested by choir members, and choir funds.
.         
       Our next Charity Concert takes place on November 6th  at  Newlands School ,Farm Rd,   Maidenhead, SL6 5JB. .  Our guest performers are some of Helen's violin pupils.  As there will be  youngsters among them , we are trying out an afternoon concert. 
The  performance will start at 3pm

 
Our charity this time is Spica Warrior.
  The charity gives support to families whose babies are born with the hip joint not developed properly . It is known as Development Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH).        Just imagine trying to change a nappy on a baby whose hip is not secure in its socket!     1 in 20 full term babies have a degree of hip instability and between 2 and 3 in 1000 will require medical intervention . Treatment has a good  success rate.

Our  April concert  raised 450.00   in aid of  the Thames Valley Adventure Playground

                Ladies are always welcome to join this friendly group of singers.

    Even if you haven't sung for a while, come and have a try, it will take a while to build your voice up again but the joy of singing will enhance your life.  Mastering a new song is a great pleasure. 
 Also,watching peoples' reactions if they recognise  an old favourite song  and are encouraged to join in.
This is especially true in the relaxed atmosphere when entertaining local clubs.
We intersperse our  songs with poems or readings and also solos from individual choir members. 
                   
         You are welcome to join us for a few weeks while you decide if you enjoy our repertoire and whether you would like to work hard and accept the challenge of Helen's conducting.    We are expected to live the music , do come and experience living each emotion!    Once you have decided to join there is a short interview/audition with Helen and our deputy conductor, Maggie to check you have chosen the correct part to sing with. This happens at the end of a rehearsal,once the choir have left.
